Iraq Idol

If LBJ only had this incredible weapon, the Vietnam War (or the Vietnamese Revolution) would have been over before it began:

A television station in communist Vietnam has bought the rights to screen Vietnam Idol, a local version of the hit talent contest American Idol, a spokesman for the station here said Monday.
Thousands of singers are expected to take a stab at fame in the spinoff, with semi-finals planned for June and the final round for July, said Kieu Van Tan, head of the arts and music department at Ho Chi Minh City Television.
“Anyone can become a star on Vietnam Idol, including you,” promises the show’s official website. “Vietnam Idol gives you support to be the brightest and the most professional on stage.”

I think the Vietnamese refer to it as the "American War" not the Vietnamese Revolution"
